How to choose the yacht for your wedding in Dubai

Another important task that you should complete as soon as the guest list is ready is to choose the yacht you will charter for the Dubai wedding. There are a few aspects you should consider when choosing the yacht for such an event, such as the number of guests. You will need to choose a large enough vessel to host them all. Then, you should consider the dining preferences and how the arrangements will look like. At this point, you will need to consider the dining options: for a traditional seated yacht wedding in Dubai, the number of guests will be reduced by a few tens, while if you opt for a buffet dinner.

A luxury recommendation from our experts is the Black Pearl yacht in Dubai.

Other important aspects to consider when renting a yacht for your wedding in Dubai is whether the party will be hosted during the day or the evening. In the case of a daylight wedding party, a yacht with an air-conditioned deck is highly recommendable. Of course, this will also depend on the season you’ll have your wedding.

Our yacht charter consultants in Dubai can make various recommendations when it comes to the vessel you can host your yacht wedding party on. We can also help you with the organization of your wedding on the yacht.

The guest list for a yacht wedding in Dubai

One of the most important steps when organizing a wedding on a yacht in Dubai remains the guest list. When putting together the guest list you should consider a few important aspects, among which:

  •           the number of guests will depend on the size of the yacht compared to organizing a traditional wedding;
  •           if you want a small yacht wedding in Dubai, renting a vessel is perfect for this occasion, as it will help you narrow down your guests;
  •           you can also organize medium and large weddings on a yacht, as there are vessels that can accommodate more than 100 guests and up to a few hundred guests;
  •           when organizing the wedding on a yacht for rent in Dubai, you should start sending the invitations earlier than usual;
  •           you will also have to make sure that all your guests have accommodation, especially if they are not from Dubai.

Once you have decided that you will have a yacht wedding in Dubai and start to think of the guest list you may want to start with the most important guests. Also, make sure you save a few more spare places for other guests who would really like to attend your wedding.

Renting a yacht for a wedding in Dubai poses different challenges compared to organizing a traditional wedding, however, with the help of our yacht charter specialists you can have the wedding you dreamed of and even more.

Choose a theme and a menu for your wedding in Dubai

Many brides are stressed about not being to organize the usually themed weddings if they choose to charter a yacht in Dubai. That is not true at all, as you can select the theme you’ve always dreamed of. Even if most of the brides have often chosen marine themes given the fact that they were on a yacht, you can select any other theme you feel pleased with. You can go for a stylish theme or a more casual one. You should definitely consider the time of day the wedding party will be held on, as well as the outfits your guests should wear.

The same goes for the menu. No matter if you decide on a seated or a buffet dinner, the menu can remain the same. You can even choose to have a chef on deck if you want to go for a more special menu and, of course, if the number of guests on your list allows it.

Given the setting, a nautical theme is the one chosen by most couples who rent a yacht in Dubai for their special wedding day. Here are some ideas that can help you with the planning:

  • Nautical décor: of course, the décor chosen for the yacht will incorporate elements such as old-fashioned steering wheels and lifebuoys; you can also add captain’s hats.
  • A fishy menu: it is only natural for your wedding menu to include fish and seafood; you should, however, include options for your guests that may be allergic to shellfish or those who do not enjoy fish;
  • Unique sweets: your wedding cake can beautifully recreate an ocean-inspired theme; the frosting can be blue and shaped like waves and it can also include other elements, to the best ability of the confectioner.

If you wish to incorporate fantasy ideas into your theme you can add mermaid-themed elements. Another idea is to have a pirate wedding. The décor will be adapted to include treasure chests, eye patches, and small pirate ships. You can even customize the cake or the candy bar to suit any theme.

You can also choose a minimalist wedding theme, such as simply choosing a dominant color (blue or turquoise if you plan on settling on the marine theme) and asking all your guests to bring attire in your chosen color.

No matter the theme and menu you decide on, you just need to let our specialists know and they will make sure everything goes as planned.

The budget for your dream yacht wedding

Your dream day can be exquisite on a yacht in Dubai. Maybe you are both sea lovers, maybe you met on a cruise or in another ocean-inspired setting and you wish to incorporate this into your day or perhaps you both love water sports, and scuba diving. All of these can be perfect reasons to think of having a wedding on a yacht.

Most people shy away from such a beautiful idea because of the costs. However, when planned in advance and with the help of a team of experts, your dream yacht wedding in Dubai does not have to “break the bank”. In fact, according to a study performed by a wedding website in the USA that relied on data from real weddings, the average cost for such an event in the United States in 2020 was 19,000$, a decrease from the average recorded by the same study in 2018, of 28,000$. This is an amount that can be used to rent a yacht in Dubai for more than one day and the price will also include various amenities that can be detailed by our team of yacht rental specialists.

Of course, the average wedding costs will differ according to your country of origin, however, you may find that the costs for a luxury wedding venue in your home country can be quite significant.

The budget for your yacht wedding in Dubai will have to include the costs for the airplane tickets and the accommodation that will be reserved outside of the time you spend on the yacht. As seen in this article, our Dubai yacht wedding package includes transport from the hotel to the marina. When you choose to plan your wedding in advance, you will have the time to look for airline ticket discounts as well as accommodation options that will suit your needs. In addition to the amenities offered in our package, you can arrange for extra activities, such as having a jet ski or a chosen DJ who will cater to your musical needs.
